We are a non-profit ministry committed to connecting students on public school campuses to Jesus and the local church.

Who We Are

Our Story
Cutting EDGE Ministries is a multi-denominational ministry that works in the public schools to connect students with the gospel of Jesus Christ and a local church. EDGE clubs are formed by student leaders who commit to becoming campus missionaries through starting an EDGE Club on their campus and inviting their friends.

Multi-denominational
Youth pastors from gospel-centered churches throughout Northern Virginia have embraced EDGE as a strategy to go into schools and make disciples that their church family can, in turn, disciple. This ministry has helped grow youth groups and churches, as well as spread the gospel to students who would never have otherwise heard.

Field Reps & Staff

EDGE Field Reps will exist to strengthen clubs in specific counties, while our Executive Director champions the EDGE, expands its reach into new schools, and raises support for the ministry.

Youth Leader & Church Partnerships

EDGE intentionally builds relationships with churches across multiple denominations to invest in youth leaders, develop student leaders, and send students who are new to the faith and seeking a church home.

What People Say

Students who stay in church after graduating high school grew up in churches that equipped them rather than entertained them. They were given opportunities to lead, trained to share the gospel, and challenged to grow in their faith.
Jon Nielson
If we see every student in the school come to EDGE Club, that’s not the win. If all the students in the school accept Christ, that’s amazing, but it’s still not the win. The win is having students not just meet Jesus, but get plugged into a local church where their faith can grow.
Brandon Hembree , Chairman of the Board
